The Honest Company


I’m super excited about The Honest Company founded by Actress Jessica Alba and Chris Gavigan. The Honest Company is a fantastic collection of completely toxic-free household cleaning goods, diapers and wipes. The company is all about support, from delivering the products direct to your doorstep on a reliable schedule, to making their services customizable and affordable, to providing educational and community-building opportunities. It is so great.

I love their incredible health and sustainability standards:

  • Reduce the ubiquitous presence of toxic chemicals in our our natural environment (air, soil, oceans, etc), man-made environments (homes, schools, offices) and our personal environments (industrial pollution inside our own bodies);
  • Protect natural resources by minimizing waste and maximizing use/re-use;
  • Support peace, security, and social justice; and,
  • Promote diversity and productivity through all facets of life – from cultural to ecological.

The Honest Family Essential Bundle ($36) includes skin and hair care products plus laundry detergent and hand soap. They also have the Honest Diaper Bundle ($80) which features a month’s supply of non-toxic, chlorine-free and plant-based diapers and, for a limited time only, their extra soft wipes. Though Sweetly Six is no longer in diapers (Silver Lining), I’ll definitely be using their other products!

An extra special Silver Lining: A portion of every dollar earned will be donated to Baby2Baby, a local charity group that supplies Los Angeles families in need with baby supplies and gear.

    I have a question rather than a comment. My active treatment for stage 3 breast cancer is coming to the end. As I reenter a "normal" lifestyle, I notice differences in my personality. I have a temper now. If someone pushes , I push back. I don't know if it is my survivor instinct kicking in or residual feelings or maybe a I won't take it anymore attitude. Anyone else have a similar experience?

      Hi JoAnn,
      Thank you for your comment. I'm going to post it on Facebook to get some feedback from the community…
      From my perspective, recovery was actually the hardest part of the whole process. I know it sounds crazy, but it's true. I had/have the short temper that you refer to. Here's what I know for sure: the person I was before FBC no longer exists. The experiences changes everyone forever. During the recovery process is when we have to figure out who we are going to be.
      It's a long, long road. I encourage you to be patient with yourself and open to what will now unfold.
      Best wishes!
